The web is transforming payments
To help ensure that the Web evolves to meet new industry needs, we’re convening e-commerce companies, payment service providers, card networks, banks, browser vendors, and others to shape the way Web Payments and E-commerce are developed.
§ Our community is focusing on
- Reducing cart abandonment rates.
- Streamlining authentication and reducing fraud.
- Fostering digital payment method innovation.
- The impact of emerging regulations on Web architecture and capabilities.
- Harmonization with other standards efforts such as FIDO and EMVCo.
- Focusing on deliverable APIs to increase the convenience and security of Web Payments.
- Increasing security across the field of payments on the web.
- Gathering voices to guide the next phase of payments on the web.
These groups work to create and implement software and APIs to make web payments easier and more secure, or provide a forum for discussion and implementation of new standards, and also allow Members to discover and fix gaps in interoperability of W3C’s standards and APIs.
